Toshiba Qosmio G45 AV680 Laptop for $2000 by Tigerdirect

The laptop tigers at Tiger Direct are offering the Toshiba Qosmio G45 AV680 for $2000 even, without any rebates! Wow, $2000 you ask? For a laptop? Why so?

Well, let's take a look! The Qosmio Q45 is powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 processor running at 2.0GHz, a 17" WUXGA widescreen capable of 1080p Full HD with 1920x1200 resolution, 2GB DDR2 PC2-5300 memory (2x 1gb modules, max 4gb), and 320GB hard disk capacity using two 160gb hard disks! Oh my! Is this the definition of temptation or what?



The dvd burner is super multi format, which means it can burn and play dvd-rw, dvd-r, dvd+r, dvd+rw, and dvd-ram. DVD-RAM being Panasonic's lovechild. It can also do double layer (DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL). But wait there's more! It can even play HD-DVDs, which is perhaps why it has been discounted since HD-DVD lost to BluRay.

But if you needed more proof that this is a multimedia power notebook, the High Definition TV Tuner, and HDMI connector will be the pudding! Advanced video processing is enabled by NVIDIA’s new GeForce 8600M GT with 512MB of VRAM graphics. You even get one SPDIF audio output!

On the second tier of features, it has a built-in webcam, 802.11a/g/n Wireless which as the "N" indicates it includes the NextGen, Bluetooth and Windows Vista Ultimate. You also have one Type I/II PC card slot for old-school and one ExpressCard slot (54 or 34) for new school.

For more details, including a video preview of the laptop, be sure to check out Tigerdirect.com! And you can "tip us" by making your purchases through this blog :)
